While Champlain College enjoys a widely acclaimed reputation for its professionally focused programs, the secret to the success of Champlain graduates includes another key ingredient—the core curriculum.
Students in every major will take courses in the humanities, sciences and economics, and explore important themes that form the foundation for critical thinking and communications. You will learn to be a global citizen, to think critically and to see connections between your major, your future career and the global economy.
You'll begin in the first year with a focus on concepts of self and community. The Core Curriculum continues into the second and third years with courses in the Western tradition and the global condition, and culminates with a senior capstone course.
How will this affect your college education? Imagine that you are a business major. You take traditional business classes like accounting, marketing and management. Yet in addition, you are also learning about the emerging economies of China and India. You interact with students from both of these nations. You study their history and read their literature. The end result is more than a business degree. You are now fully prepared to do business with these countries and their people.
